Who you gonna call….man with a van!

man and van service

Sometimes you don’t need a full on removal service – sometimes you just need to move a few bits and pieces. 


man with a van bustersPerhaps you’re putting some belongings into storage after a declutter. Maybe you’re giving a few bits of furniture to your daughter who recently set up her own home for the first time. Perhaps you’re a student and you just have the contents of a small bedsit to move over the summer months, or you’re moving to a furnished property so it’s just your belongings to get from A to B. Or you could be a business, looking to get some office furniture from one site to another, which is really just down the road.

Whatever the reason, you don’t really want the full size removal van and crew, but nor do you fancy lugging large sofas around on your own, or self driving something a bit larger than your usual Ford Fiesta.

You need to hire a man with a van service…

At McCarthy’s you simply select the number of ‘men’ you need to get the job done, and a time and date and we can give you a quote straight away. You’re guaranteed good value for money, but a trustworthy and reputable service with uniformed staff you can trust. Not just some dodgy geezer in a rusty old transit!

Joking aside, it’s definitely worth checking out the credentials of any potential service you engage. Only accepting cash in hand is usually a worrying sign, as is someone who is tricky to get hold of. The benefits of using a service such as ours is that we are registered with the BAR (British Association of Removers) and have the relevant safety standards, which you probably won’t get with a lone trader. Ask about insurance – what happens if something gets broken or mislaid? There should always be a written contract, rather than just a verbal agreement.

Our teams can bring equipment, such as trolleys, as needed, and also we can provide vans with a tail lift – very helpful for those bigger items! And McCarthy’s staff are experts in removals of all shapes and sizes – they will know exactly how to pack the van to keep your things safe (you don’t really want your sideboard falling over at the first roundabout), and exactly how best to physically carry that awkward shaped coffee table or grand piano!

McCartheys were there to take much of the stress out of what was a very difficult time for myself and my family.All the staff were patient and understanding of our dilemma and did all they could to help.
The storage facilities were safe and very secure with easy access .
All in all a painless experience.
Would highly recommend.

Really friendly and helpful customer service and explained everything clearly. Easy to reserve and new facility in York seems well secured and easy to access, with handy equipment to use (particularly with extended hours - at additional cost). Only minor comment for improvement during these times would be to have sanitise stations near the keypads as these are touch points for everyone using the facility.

Really good service and nice units. Easy access, great location, nothing to fault
